Hi;
A non tech savy friend of mine wants to try Linux. I used Ubuntu 8.04 and would like to burn her a livecd of Ubuntu. Last time I did this there was some futzing to produce a bootable livecd from the ISO.

So, ....using Ubuntu 8.04 how can I make a bootable live Ubuntu 8.04 cd?

Thanks in advance

Download the .iso from the Ubuntu website and once you have it, double clicking the file should load up the cd burning program automatically, honestly couldn't be easier.

Famous last words :)
